TAR15: Justin Kanew & Zev Glassenberg - Friends
« on: September 09, 2009, 07:47:11 AM »
Zev and Justin
Biography
Zev Glassenberg (26); Justin Kanew (30)
Hometown: Sherman Oaks, Calif. / Los Angeles
Occupation: Unemployed/VP of Production and Development for National Lampoon
Relationship: Friends

Zev and Justin's friendship started six years ago when they were working as camp counselors and the two have been very close ever since.  Zev has Asperger's Syndrome, but they don't let it affect their relationship.  They share friends and interests, and the friendship is as mutually beneficial as any could be.

Zev is an avid sports fan — especially basketball — and he has an intense competitive spirit. He describes himself as funny, modest, and loyal, and is running the Race to prove to himself that he can do anything.

Justin prides himself on his patience and his ability to problem solve.  He admits the biggest difference between he and his partner is that Zev is not great in large groups of people — one of the characteristics of Asperger's — while Justin is very easy-going and can assimilate himself into any group.

Outside of the occasional trip to Vegas (where Justin took Zev to lose his virginity), neither has traveled extensively, particularly with one another. Their relationship is spontaneous and unedited and resembles one of brothers more than friends.

Why can I not help liking every team so far! Loving Zev and Justin! Especially Zev as I too have aspergers though milder/lesser?

They look far from boring to me!! I think the fact that they are such good friends and Zev has no problems speaking his mind to Justin, will make them lots of fun to watch! I am looking forward to seeing more of them in action!

I don't know what to make of them currently, am neutral for now. But I think they'll be a pretty interesting team, it could be either we really dislike them, or really like them.

If this team gets along the whole way, than they will definitely be a good example for many people, can't wait to see what happens.

Assuming, of course, that they don't become over-edited and controversial like what happened with Margie & Luke last season.

Zev seems cool and I'm looking forward to learning more about aspergers because I haven't heard of it...

it's a development illness, and a form of autism that is mild/lesser.... but most people with it, they live normal lives and are just like normal people, though a bit slower... some of them have special talents

there all ready is some one on the cbs side saying this team is the biggest gimmick of a gimmicky seson. I also have auspergers and no what it is like to live with it. I am really excited for this team. I do not think there ever has been a reality tv contestnent on any show with it so it will be good. I hope they do good. I understnd him when he sayshe has to speek his mind i am the same way. if he is like me he wont be able to lie eater becuse i cant but then again my room mate is a feelow aspie and she could win an acadmey award for liying so time will tell. I hope they go far
